We visited Seattle May '14 and '15, staying at the Fairmont both times. A luscious hotel, yet the rooms always seemed to be a little bit too small. I'd definitely recommend as it has a great location and great quality for money.

This hotel has the glory of bygone era. Decadent rooms with separate sitting rooms. You'll feel like royalty. I was pleasantly surprised with free water and truffles shortly after checking in.

The suite was extremely comfortable with lots of additional handy items. Room was very clean and bed/linens were great! Room darkening drapes were nice since the sun rises early in Seattle. Being a rainy city, the umbrella would have been handy except it was sunny!

Great service, great room. President's Club members can have gym clothes waiting in the room, so no need to pack sneakers and clothes for exercise. In addition, the Fairmont has a car service for local drop off/pick up
